MO〔VE〕MENT- MEDIATING A MOMENT IN TIME AND A MOVEMENT IN HISTORY The FESTIVAL 2017 questions, twists and manipulates the meanings of MOMENT and MOVEMENT. While the FESTIVAL may create seminal/ visual objects of curiosity, complexity and ideas for speculation, it is not simply a moment of ‘art attack’. The second praxis of the FESTIVAL 2017 embraces platforms/ methodologies of pedagogy for public mediation and it forges co-extensive spaces and initiatives for such co-participants as artists, educators, school-cum-public learners to develop self, interactive or constructive learning. The FESTIVAL 2017 focuses on “MO(VE)MENT” and it accredits our daily gesture, attitude, act of identity, self/ co-existence, difference, intervention, detachment, escapism, nomadism. Every moment or movement in our daily life, or resistance to localization, globalization, or its hybrid mix (glocalism) is celebrated. The FESTIVAL makes every participatory moment count and makes every momentary memory further-lingering. Together the artists explore the extension of art form and kinaesthetic awareness, investigating the intelligence of visual and body form, and their intervention in space. The image/ imagined/ imaginary of each project restructures the relationship between the MOMENT of intervention and MOVEMENT bearing enduring thought-practice. Every frozen, visualized or performative moment embraces its intrinsic and intuitive value and the FESTIVAL brings this value further to public understanding or historical impact. “MO〔VE〕MENT” not only presents images or attitudes existing in “the current moment of space-time”, it supports projects with thought-discussion in “the (art, culture, urban, …) movement of the past or future” as well. The dialogical platform is not simply intending to renew a page in the ontology of history or globalism, nor spearheading geo-political culture towards a movement encompassing collateral event at the expense of discourse; rather, it emerges from a speculation with OUR TIME and a dialogue with history IN THE EVERYDAY.
INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON CROSSING-BORDER BORDER-CROSSING | International Festival of Intermedia 2017
L1 CENTRAL COURTYARD- JCCAC Art Village
OCT 9 (MON) 5:00 - 6:30PM
EXHIBITION & POST-PERFORMANCE DISCUSSION
OCT 9 (MON) 5:00 - 6:30PM
EXHIBITION & POST-PERFORMANCE DISCUSSION
The forum brings the discourse of the crossing-border phenomenon to the centre of discussion, focusing on artworks or their branching-out ideas which narrate their connection and possibilities with other artworks in enacting or refreshing heritage and urban spaces, be they banal, unused, pop-up, or alternative. The forum is a new glocal mediated and/ or body-derived platform where the rich heterogeneity of cultural production is experienced as imaginative metaphor non-definitive.
The festival forum aims at assisting the co-participants to explore ways on how the conventional demarcation of space-time, global-local strategy can be transgressed, and how the local praxes can be positively assimilated to world-view experiments to create new, shared experience.
